The Pan-American Masters Games (PAMG) is a celebration of vibrancy and sportsmanship, bringing together athletes from more than 50 countries to compete in over 20 metal-contending sports.

A major event for International Masters Games Association (IMGA), this event will bring together more than 7,500 masters’ athletes and thousands more spectators from around the world for a multi-sport experience from 12 – 23 July 2024.

Being the largest international gathering in Cleveland’s history, Greater Cleveland Sports Commission, the local nonprofit hosting the event, is organizing efforts in the city, including building a website for the games.
An announcement regarding the website will be made later this summer, but for now, interested athletes can sign up for the digital newsletter to receive more information at

Additionally, the 2024 Pan-American Masters Games – Cleveland is on social media. You can follow along on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

While our community gets ready to host visitors from a variety of cultures and backgrounds to celebrate sport and friendly competition, we can’t help but think of the parallels between PAMG and our city.

Cleveland is as bold and passionate as this event is active and proud. While the event embodies the spirit of perseverance, vigor, health and vitality at any stage in life, “The Land” (as it’s nicknamed) has many of these qualities:

  • Cleveland’s rich rock ‘n roll history is a sign of perseverance in the music world.
  • Our celebration of art and culture throughout the world makes our community a great place to learn about and embrace many backgrounds.
  • Staying active is important for residents and visitors alike. While PAMG is hosted during our Summer months, we encourage opting outside for a city-centric adventure or an experience on a larger scale to stay healthy and active no matter what your age.
  • Balance is especially important for athletes. There’s a time to work and a time to play; Cleveland has a variety of delicious places to eat and drink.
